What is Zork?
Zork was one of the first interaction fiction games for the PC. You would type out your instructions the screen, and would get a response saying what then happened. It was entirely text based.
How does the gameplay work for this?
It's a first person point and click adventure puzzle game. Think Myst. Actually the game is rather similar to Myst in a lot of ways, it just adds a sense of humor to the whole approach.
The Zork games are all great, but this is the first one I played, so it will always hold a special place in my heart. It's relatively short, and genuinely funny, which can be hard to come by in games these days.
Also, there are many ways to die in this game. I'm going to try to showcase all of them, and post them in the thread as well as the OP once they occur. But if you guys notice that I've missed one, let me know and I'll head back and show that one too. I want to be complete with this.
So without further delay, let's get this thing started!
